As the 1 year mark grows near my mind again wondering about weaning. My main concern right now? MORNING WAKEUP TIME! Once weaned, I'm pretty sure Blaine will get up in the morning at an ungodly early hour and will not go back to sleep. As it is now, he wakes up at 4:30 AM and I bring him to my bed and nurse him to sleep. Then he wakes up at 6, same thing. Wakes up at 7:30, same thing. My boob is the only thing keeping that kid asleep until 8:30 which is a much more acceptable time to start the day than 4:30 AM. I mean there are still some random days (last Monday for example) that he wakes up at 5 AM and even the boob trick won't work and we just get up and play then have naps at 7. But most days I can keep him asleep with my trickery until at least 7:30.
